Explore the Valley of Thor

We begin our adventure from Reykjavík by driving our modified super trucks along the south shore of Iceland. We make our way towards one of Iceland’s most cherished places, Þórsmörk (The Valley of Thor) with a few stops along the way. From Þórsmörk you can get a good view of the world famous volcano/ glacier Eyjafjallajökull that brought world aviation to a standstill in 2010.

Our first stop is at the Icelandic Horse Visitor Centre that offers something for everyone, whether you want to meet the Icelandic horse close up, enjoy an exhibition about our horses throughout history, or simply enjoy a cup of warm coffee at the café.

On our way we make a stop at the stunning Seljalandsfoss Waterfall where you can actually   go behind it to get a totally different perspective. From there we take a turn and head towards the highlands. We catch sight of the small but beautiful Gígjökull Glacier, which has a small glacial lake in front. A number of glacier rivers need to be crossed in order to get to our destination. Þórsmörk is surrounded by three glaciers and numerous mountains that create very favourable weather and growth conditions for the 170 plant species to be found in the area.

Þórsmörk has many walking paths so it is an ideal place for short hikes with dramatic views of the glaciers, woodlands and other colourful landscapes. There is a reason why it is so popular for Icelanders to go there, namely how stunningly beautiful the scenery is.

Tour Highlights

Seljalandsfoss

The Seljalandsfoss waterfall, like an oasis in the desert, stops the buses in their tracks and make visitors swoon at its magnificent glory. Standing at 60 meters, the most unique feature is the loop trail leading adventurous visitors right behind its watery curtain for an experience as rare as it is breathtaking.

Eyjafjallajökull

Eyjafjallajökul caused quite a stir with a fiery eruption in 2010, causing serious trouble for airlines and travelers. The glacier crests at an elevation of 1.651 meters, where its ice cap covers the caldera of an active volcano. This ice cap stretches over an area of roughly 100 square kilometres and the mountain beneath the cap stands at 1651 meters high.
